The Catholic Education Foundation, CEF, is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization established in 1968 to provide tuition assistance for qualified students wishing to attend an Evansville Catholic High School. In the current school year CEF provided support to over 40% of students attending Memorial or Mater Dei, who may not otherwise have the opportunity.

By contributing to CEF you ensure all students, regardless of socioeconomic background, can attend a Catholic high school. A donation of any size makes a positive difference in the lives of young men and women who will be blessed by the lifelong benefit of an outstanding Catholic high school education.


"Catholic schools educate young people in what matters most. We teach about faith and help students grow in their relationship with God. Our schools maintain high expectations while striving to fully develop the whole child spiritually, academically, emotionally and physically."


-Mr. Matt Moore, principal of Annunciation School at Christ the King
